? >> well, the president -- president obama is the best writer in this administration. he's a wonderful writer, and he's so involved in these addresses, perhaps as much as president presidents like president clinton and others. but to clark's point, the biggest debate is within the republican party. the fact that they have two republicans in the response to the state of the union is a party that's divided. i think in the past election, we saw that the republican party is on the wrong side of history when it comes to climate change, guns, gay marriage, jobs, all these issues the president laid out in his inaugural address. we're going to hear how he's going to move those issues forward tuesday night in a way that is widely supported by the american people, and the republican party just needs to figure out whether they want to get on board with the rest of america or want to be behind the curve of history and be an afterthought over the next decade. >> paul, i've got to stop you right now. thank you very much. and also clark judge, we appreciate it. both men writing speeches for
